About Project

Dorset Carers Support offers advice, information and peer support for people who look after someone living with mental illness throughout the Dorset Council area. We provide one to one and group support on a wide range of topics including, specialist emotional support, targeted 1:1 support to identify and achieve personal goals, navigating the mental health system, information on conditions, medications, as well as carers rights. Our service also offers group activities and outings so that our attendees can meet other carers in their local area. In addition to this we manage a carer respite fund providing respite for carers in order to improve wellbeing. We also provide specialist training to support unpaid carers of someone with a mental illness.

Our service is open to people based in Dorset except for residents who live in Bournemouth and Poole who can contact CRISP (
